Academic representation has changed a lot over the past few months, and that’s all down to a major piece of work we undertook last year.
After a launching our 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, we quickly realised that our course rep system was inconsistent, confusing and simply old-fashioned. We wanted to ensure that we could effectively represent students’ academic interests at Royal Holloway. So, we hired an external consultant to meet with students, course reps, union staff and College staff to ascertain what academic representation should look like, how it should be used by all people within the academic community, and what we needed to do to next. As a result, we were given 42 recommendations to implement over the next few years.
Quite a lot. We’ve already made a start on over 30 of the 42 recommendations, and we’re striving to have the rest ready to go by September 2020. Here are the headlines:
